80 U.S. High Schools Recognized for their Commitment to Global Learning

Top Schools National Press Release 2016

AFS-USA, a leader in international student exchange, is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 “Top Global Learning School” award, selected in partnership with The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS), an international honor society dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of high-achieving students. Drawing on AFS-UNA’s combined knowledge of the intercultural education landscape in the U.S., 80 high schools were selected to receive the AFS Top Global Learning School Award, which recognizes outstanding commitment to developing the global competency of students.

The goal of this initiative was to both honor global educators around the country and build awareness surrounding the importance of global competency development in U.S. schools. The AFS Top Global Learning School Award recognizes exceptional dedication to fostering global citizenship through intercultural learning—both inside and outside of the classroom. From hosting international students, to encouraging American students to study abroad, to incorporating intercultural learning initiatives into their curriculum, these institutions have demonstrated a strong commitment to developing the global competency of their students.
